Finally! The perfect adventure jacket!
This is simply a great jacket. I have the Aerostich Roadcrafter jacket (owned for 10 years)(I'd give 4 stars) and the BMW Rallye 3 jacket (owned 3 years)(I'd give 3 stars) that I switch between for riding my GS. The Roadcrafter has been a good jacket and it is Gore-tex but has three shortcomings: the liner is not removable and is not mesh so it gets hot, I look like a Power Ranger, and the armor is heavy and gets stiff in the cold. The Rallye 3 has several shortcomings, including the jacket is very heavy, the armor is VERY heavy, the armor gets stiff like a brick in the cold, and it is only waterproof if you zip in the liner.

The Overland jacket does it all. I'm 6', 205 pounds and the large fits me spot on, with just enough room to layer a good fleece but I can wear the jacket alone without swimming in it. The pluses: (1) the jacket is light for a fully armored jacket with back armor; (2) waterproof without a liner; (3) right out of the box it's not as stiff as most Cordura jackets; (4) the D30XT armor is soft and stays flexible; (5) venting system works easier and you don't have to remove the jacket to work the vents; (6) great value and costs $100+ less then the other jackets; (7) Looks MUCH better than the other jackets; (8) I consider three external pockets and one internal pocket to be perfect. I just don't need or want my jacket to look like "cargo pants" with pockets everywhere -- that's why I have a tank bag; (9) Multi-season use. I bought the gray jacket and it looks like a nice ski jacket instead of like a Power Ranger costume -- the armor slips out in a couple of seconds and I could actually wear this jacket while off the motorcycle at a bar without feeling like a geek or even as a winter coat. If I removed the armor and went skiing in this jacket no one would think I was wearing a motorcycle jacket and it would fit me just like my Arc Teryx ski jacket shell.

Nice job Klim!

Saved Me - Walked Away vs. Flight for life according to Paramedics
I was in a motorcycle accident today. I was going about 65 mph, big wind gust, hit some ice and went down. The overland jacket and pants saved me. I have had these for a couple of years. It has performed beyond expectations.

good jacket
This is the first klim jacket I have owned and I a very pleased. I'm 6 foot 175ish and went with a medium which fits perfect. The jacket is comfortable while riding and vents pretty good. One thing the online video review missed is the jacket has a left upper chest pocket. The zipper to this pocket has a button on it that will snap onto the collar to hold it down so if you don't want to button the wind collar it wont flap in the wind. Good number of pockets, it is waterproof, and good amount of adjustments on neck, arms, and wrist areas. Overall great jacket and would buy it again and this is my first experience with Revzilla which was great

Don't believe the rave reviews on the warranty.
I purchased the Overland jacket for a cross-country trip last April-May. The jacket proved to be lighter weight and more flexible than the Latitude, but the quality was not the same. For winter riding you will need several layers. Upon arriving home I washed the jacket as instructed by the dealer and the care instructions only to find the mesh that holds the armor was torn out. After sending it back to Klim for repair they quoted me a price to repair the jacket. I fully expected it to be covered under warranty, it wasn't. Had I know they did not actually stand behind their products, I would have looked more closely at the Ruka and Revit gear.

Finally a good value in a well made modular
I have bought almost one of every high end jacket looking for the best overall so that I can take long trips and not have to carry extra gear. This jacket comes closest so far and I love the fact it is completely gimmick free.

The front top pocket holds my iPhone 6+ just perfect and has kept it dry and handy for literally thousands of miles and smiles.

This gear performs and with various layers has taken me down as far as I want to ride. I like a snug fit though and if I nitpicked I would like to have the personal info pocket on the sleeve but did not want the complexity of the higher end jackets. Living in the South, should have probably bought the lighter color way too as the black does get hot when sitting in traffic in the sun , though the vents are so well done that once moving this jacket moves a ton of air and keeps you dry in the worst of downpours . Four days recently in Frogchokers were unable to overcome this jacket design.

I read the factory does not honor warranty of failed issues from washing and that is unfortunate to read. I rarely wash the black one though so hopefully it won't be an issue.

I got this jacket on sale and was sub 400 for sure a good value at that price point after paying over five hundred for the jeans I got for the trip *Rokkers) so the jacket was a bargain by comparison . BTW the Rockers are water proof too though they take forever to dry out on the outside. Not an issue with the Klim

KISS, keep it simple stupid would be my advise to Klim as this is what you need when banging out mile after mile in the states mostly on roads and the phone pocket water proof pockets and good fit without a lot of baggy sizing is a step in the right direction for me. I use the jacket for everything but dessert riding and my full mess BMW does that job well.

Keep riding thanks again to Antony and the guys at Reveille for setting the bar so high for service and helpful advice to get the gear you need when you need it. l

Good All around Jacket
I use this jacket on my daily commute to work (90%) and some light turing and adventure turing (10%) down in Venezuela, with temperatures in the 71 to 86 degrees range, in a KLR650.

The mobility afforded by the jacket is way better than expected, something that is crucial for riders in my country as we weave in and out of lanes constantly. As such the jacket has not become an encumbrance with the continuous handlebar movements and body positioning required.

Once the temperature hits the 80s, the jacket may become a bit hot mainly while waiting at an intersection for the light to change, and thus would greatly benefit from added ventilation in the arms.

Finally I`ve only been though light rain with it and it has behaved flawlessly as not a single drop was noticeable on my long sleeve dress shirt or tie (I was comming back from work)

Possibly the only suit you will ever need.
Just arrived back home today from a 2800 mile tour on my Multistrada from Washington through Southern Utah wearing the Klim Overland Jacket and Pants. Weather ranged from 84F in the Canyons of Utah to 36F with heavy wind driven rain in the mountain passes of WA. When it was hot, I stayed comfortable with all the vents open wearing a short sleeve shirt and long hiking pants underneath. While riding in the cold (also rode through a brief but freak snowstorm near Salt Lake) I was wearing two long sleeve thermal shirts. I could have used a down vest in addition and that would have been perfect. Plenty of room to layer underneath. I'm 6ft 180lbs, got the large jacket and 32L pants in Black. Jacket is a bit loose in the torso but did not flutter, even when going 130 mph (did I say that out loud). Pants were spot on, loose enough for jeans underneath. The suit did not leak, even when riding 2 hours in hard cold rain with strong gusty winds. What I really like about this suit is how quickly the outer fabric dries because the Gore Tex is laminated to the Cordura. I have several suits with drop in water proof liners and the outer shells can take all day to dry when riding in heavy rain. I ride every day through the winter in Western Washington and this suit may prove to be the most practical suit I own. Jacket and pants are comfortable, keeps you dry without feeling clammy, you can wear your street clothes underneath with enough room to layer for warmth. Armor is light and comfortable. Vents will keep you cool enough in warm weather if you are moving. My wife likes the way it looks on me and you won't look like a character from Star Wars if you walk into a store or restaurant (maybe a snowboarder). One thing to note is the cuffs are too tight to wear your gloves underneath. Great price for Gore Tex that feels and looks like quality gear.

Great jacket, great price
I just returned from a 2500 mile, 7-day trip through CO, NM & AZ wearing my new Klim Overland Jacket. On this trip we rode through everything from hot desert, high mountains, substantial rains and snows, and dirt roads. The venting was adequate for a waterproof jacket, but could be improved. I was able to stay cool in the hot desert sections by opening the vents, not zipping all the way up and leaving the collar and cuffs open. When the weather turned nasty (100 straight miles of torrential rains and snow) I closed the vents, zipped up and pulled the draw string on the collar and stayed perfectly dry. It is also roomy enough that I was able to wear a merino wool base layer, a 800 fill down jacket, and a light fleece underneath to stay warm. The only real improvement that could be made on this jacket is the addition of a belt to keep it in place a bit better. Overall, this jacket is fantastic and I would absolutely recommend it.

An Instant Classic
Like all my KLIM gear, this one won me over as soon as I put it on. It's great to have a flexible use outer without a waste strap as I've grown used to (8yrs) with their PowerXross pullover, my go to outer.

Coming from a lifetime of dirt riding I'm very fond of the tolerant and motion oriented fit that offers no binding or discomfort whatsoever. Armor placement isn't even felt. The jacket feels perfectly neutral. The cuffs are typically a little stiff to start but loosen nicely after a few wearings. Waterproofness is excellent. Ventilation is good. The collar seems to represent years of tweaking as it's the best one I've felt yet. Worn with appropriate KLIM base and mid-layers this jacket is an excellent all-weather solution.

Function over form type here, and I really appreciate a garment without an overabundance of features and bling. KLIM just happens to push all the right buttons with me.

I wanted riding gear than can actually hold up in the rain and other elements. My joerocket and revit rain suits, gloves, etc; would eventually leak after 20 minutes of rain (but mostly in the seams). I wanted something with high visibility, good armor/protection, at least a few pockets (Klim makes other ADV jackets for a lot more because of the extra pockets, features, etc that I don't need), and for water proofness!
PortlandTwoWheels on Mar 29, 2015
Like most, don't like the idea of a waterproof liner under a non-waterproof jacket nor having to carry a rain jacket that doesn't breathe. Plus, Goretex and Cordura is a good combination. Works well up to 90's as long as moving. Fellow riders are noticing and purchasing Klim. Commissions????

I want true waterproof, I want decent levels of crash protection and I want comfort. I don't want heavy and limiting of my movement, I ride to feel free. This jacket looks well made and designed (waist cinching aside). I chose this jacket to meet my criteria as well for the reviews I have seen of Klim equipment. I also chose it because Klim have kept working on their design (neck comfort for example) which shows a company that does care about the quality of their products. Also a sensible price!
Don M on Jun 4, 2014

Looking at an Overland jacket. I'm 5'7, 190 lbs, 30" sleeve. Any advice on size? Thanks
A C on Feb 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Great choice…I really like mine…got it last Spring. I'm just under 6' tall, 41 1/2" chest and about 31 1/2" sleeve and the Large fits me very well, if anything I have some extra length in sleeves and plenty in chest. Maybe start with medium…Revzilla great about returns though…I ended up exchanging overland regular pants for "tall" or long version…no problem with them!
Need help making choices. Early next year I have a 10-day adventure trip planned in Ecuador which includes both hot/humid and cold/rain/snow. I was decided on the Overland jacket and pants but then I started to compare it to the Badlands Pro jacket and pants but at almost double the price of the Overland, I was wondering if it was really worth the premium price difference? I see that the Badlands is a 3 -ply Gortex rather than the 2-ply of the Overland. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
JOSE L on Jul 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the overland jacket as a commuter jacket and I'm very pleased by the choice. I live in Kansas where the temperature ranges from very hot and humid to freezing cold. I normally don't use the included zip in liners for most jackets as I prefer to use more of a layering method depending on the weather and my destination. The Overland makes layering easy with plenty of room for a fleece or other base layers. I also find the venting of the jacket to be pretty good considering the vents are not designed to direct air into the jacket but seem to be more for letting hot air out. I've ridden with it in 100 degree weather and it is better than other jackets I've had but it is still a waterproof jacket and will get hotter than mesh. I've ridden through some awesome Kansas style thunderstorms and the jacket kept me completely dry when other jackets I've had would have failed.
Overall, I really don't think I would choose anything else. For the price I really do think this is probably the most versatile jacket available. Now that I have the Overland I feel the Badlands really would be overkill for my needs and the way I ride.
Is the included armor removable?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hi Buyer.

The included armour is removable, and the jacket is durable and nicely detailed. On the negative, the back armour insert is a bit lean. Still, this piece is well worth the price.

Hi,

Is this an appropriate jacket for summer commuting? Do the vents provide adequate cooling for temps in the mid 80s?

I like the klim lineup but I want to be sure something like the Overland will be comfortable for summer riding.

Thanks
A shopper on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe its the best jacket in the Klim lineup for commuting. For me it flows plenty of air with just a tee shirt on underneath. Most of my riding is a 30 mile commute to work each way. I like the "shell" concept in that the jacket itself is the true waterproof gore-tex outer layer. Then you just add layers depending on the season. The more "adventure" oriented jackets just seem to have too many bells and whistles that I don't need. I think all those pockets would inhibit cooling. Hope this helps, good luck!
looking for a jacket to replace my tourmaster. any type of winter liner included with the jacket .?
John R on Sep 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Klim Overland jacket is without any additional liners, other than the mesh liner which is built in and not for warmth or rain.

With that stated, I was previously using a Tourmaster Transition 2 jacket for about 5 years. This Klim Overland jacket is much more of an outer wear jacket by a long shot. It is both warmer and cooler than the Transition 2 jacket without the liner.

For a warmth liner, I used in both jackets the Tourmaster Synergy electric liner. With the liner turned on behind a K1200RS (with GT wind protection) the Klim jacket is good for another 10-20 degrees than the Tourmaster was per heat settings. The Tourmaster just lets too much air in through the fabric, but yet wasn’t that much better if at all in hot temperatures with all vents open then the Overland is. True when using a separate liner such as an electric liner, they are not zipped or attached and will be a separate jacket to remove. This is both a plus and minus, myself, I prefer this so it is easier to change with the day’s riding temperature changes.

Rain, hands down the Klim wins, no contest.

The Overland does not have the same pocket features of the Transition, but again if that is wanted, step up to the Klim Latitude or Badlands for more even $$.
I am 5' 7", 47" chest, 31" arms (think fireplug) L or XL?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Great jacket. I'm 6', 42" chest, 33" arm length and got an XL. I do wear a Leatt under jersey chest protector with shoulder & elbow/arm pads and it fits perfect. Hope this helps.
Does the jacket zip to the pants?
Max A on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it does not. It does have a draw string at the bottom to snug it a bit. Not aware of Klim's that zip to pants. I would check Klim website or call Revzilla, they are a wealth of knowledge. Aerostich makes a one piece suit [Roadcrafter Classic] and 2 piece jacket zips to pants [Roadcrafter].
I am 6'2" 200 with a 44 chest but 35" sleeve. Wanted to order the Overland jacket but sleeve length says calls for 2XL but chest calls for L. What now?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am 5´8 207 46 and wear the L just fine. with you being 6¨2 i would recommend going for the XL. the jacket is perfect for everyday use but in hot weather the lack of arm ventilation can be a factor if the sleeves ride to tight to your arms.

The Overland falls into the Klim food chain as a more light-weight version of something like the Latitude. In recent years, we've seen the Latitude, we've seen the Badlands Pro, the Overland is going to be full-scale Gore-tex. It's a two-layer construction. And remember, it's an outer shell. The Gore-tex liner is not removable; waterproof, breathable, guaranteed for life. You're investing in Gore-tex because it keeps you shielded from Mother Nature, but also allows you to breathe. Remember, I did mention tactical outer shells, which is what Klim does; they let you choose whether it's a thermal liner, or how you want to beef up your base and mid-layers underneath. But really, they're meant to be 4-season pieces of apparel.

The Overland also takes a lot of its inspiration from something like the Traverse, which is an off-road enduro piece that a lot of people were using on the street. The Overland is going to come with your D3O armour; it comes with everything you need right off the rack, and rock-solid. And, watch our detailed breakdown video of the Overland pants by Peter Waring to my left as well. We don't want to break them down. We did that in a separate video. Now keep in mind too, as you're seeing this first glance, click here, subscribe to RevZilla TV, and leave us your comments; love to hear your questions as well.

Let's dive right in on sizing. So, Peter, 6', 195, 42" chest; he has actually a little bit more muscular legs as well on this outfit. You see the way that he's filling it out, but he is wearing a size large. It's the same size that Peter wears in the Traverse. We find the fit is not that much different. One of the things we did notice, and I'm going to nitpick it a little bit, is if Peter raises his arms, it's a little bit boxy down here under the arms. They've changed the vent configuration. I'm going to show that in a second. But, if you can see how it hangs; love to see some maybe cinching on this jacket. I'm not sure how we could slightly pull that off. It's feedback back up the flagpole to clients. But also keep in mind, we ship for free and exchange for free; no restocks when you need to send it back. So, don't fret if the only place you can find it is with us, online and you want to take that chance on sizing.

Now, reeling that back for a second, let's talk a little bit more highly about this outfit. It's really 4-seasons, which means you're waterproof where you beef up the thermal layers underneath for the winter, but in the summer, you have plenty of ventilation and it's going to be able to go through it and keep you cool. In spring and fall, motorcycling is typically an easier time of the year for most people depending on your temper or your tolerance for waterproofing. So, the key things here, big changes over the Traverse; down the arm, you're going to see there are big vertical vents now that are water resistant zippers that tie in with the Gore-tex integrated waterproof laminate here. But, there's your intakes on both sides.

On the Traverse, they used to be under the arms. They're a little harder, a little bit more out of the way. Now, you have a little bit more access to them. Basic hand-warmer pockets on the front. And, turn around; I'm going to show them the back really quickly here. This is the big feature here for summertime riding -- big scoops on the back, big exhausts that are going to allow that free-flowing air to come out. Turn back around to the front for me, Peter; musical chairs here. Now looking at the shell itself, it's going to be 840D Cordura in impact areas. You can see it in this darker grey. Remember there's a black version of this outfit as well. So, dark grey up here around the shoulders, along the arms, end of the sleeve, areas that are going to be more prone to abrasion. You saw it on the back of the jacket. And, it's an abrasion resistant textile that's not Cordura that you are going to see. It's a little softer. It's not quite crunchy. It has a nice feel to it in the main construction.

Other thing I want to call out is we talked about armour, D3O armour included. And if you do the math and you bought a Traverse, which is less street-centric and a much different style, and added the D3O to it later, it would actually be more expensive to do that. In the Overland, you're getting it all in one shot. So D3O, EVO armour, XT, extended temperature; it's molecular armour. On impact, it disperses the energy. You can see it's that orange armour, it's very flexible, it's very comfortable. But, the XT rating means that even when you go really deep into the temperature range, it's still going to be comfortable against your body, it's still going to do its job in the case of impact.

Shoulders and then, elbows, you're also getting a CE Level 1 back protector that you could upgrade, but it comes stock here in the back which is a nice feature. Now, looking up to the collar, some of the creature comforts and nuances; nice big fleece-lined collar here. Peter rocks a Traverse Jacket. He was mentioning to us that it works for him, it's a stand-up collar. It's really a multi-season touring style outfit. Big YKK zippers, Vislon pulls. Notice it was a two-way zipper. So if you're on an upright bike, you can give yourself a little room to flare it at the bottom. And also, if we look at the reflective scheme, this is something we're seeing come down the pipe from Klim. As they're looking at reflective, they're saying they want to make sure that the humanoid form can be recognized by somebody that's just seeing headlights hit a dark rider at night.

So, shoulders, elbows, forearms, down toward the sleeve, you're going to see it as you work your way down the pants, and see how that would light up, and be bright, and make sure that somebody has a better chance of knowing you're a person on a bike, and they can stop accordingly. Velcro going all the way down with a snap at the collar. Basic on the inside; remember, it's a technical shell. You're going to add your own layers to it. So, mesh lining, iPod pocket, all YKK zippers throughout; some cinching here on the bottom, but again, it's not going to do anything around those kidney areas. You even have loops to be able sneak your iPod or headphone wires all the way up.

Now, turn backwards for me one more time, Peter. I'll walk a little bit more in depth through the back. Pull-cinching here up along the back of the neck for the collar; we talked about that fleece lining, its wicking. Reflectivity, you see that with these big pulls, and then the drop seat that comes all the way down. Look at this. This cut is much more for an upright or three-quarter riding position. I'm not going to recommend it for the tuck at all.
